Awesome presentation Dr Wong. 1 Are there chances of food impaction when you use only end cutting drill to reduce the bone. 2 what is the speed of the drill?

michael gelman - (2/12/2019 12:12 PM)

how long after the paintment can i wath the video? payment made.

Wassim Omari - (11/11/2018 4:07 PM)

nice presentation Dr.Wong . do you use periodontal dressing after the surgery ?and how long you leave it there ? thank you

How an Optragate would have made your life a lot easier

Thomas Devlin - (6/16/2018 5:47 PM)

Dr. Wong, could you include some information about the dental codes you would use and what you charge for this procedure? I kept thinking about

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:18 PM)

Hard tissue laser better than high speed drill, laser would remove bone virtually bloodlessly and not damage root surface !

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:14 PM)

Ivoclar's Optragate would also have clear field isolation and lip retraction.

Prevention & Therapy of Biological Complications in Implant Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
After decades of implant therapies carried out by mostly general dentists, a new pathology that did not exist only 25 years ago is spreading like wildfire: peri-implantitis. In this course we will discuss the possibilities of prevention of this disease and the most modern therapies to treat biological complications in implant therapy in the light of clinical research published and in the next publication.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing the amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition
Esthetic dentistry demands more of clinicians than just simeple knowledge of tooth anatomy and the proper dimensions of teeth. Dentists must also know and understand the proper positions of the teeth in relation to the gingiva, the lips, and entire face. Esthetic measurements are not the only important factors. Other considerations need to include the patient's phonetics and function. A example of a situation where this knowledge and awareness is imperative is in the case of the worn dentition (eg, attrition, abrasion, etc). This article addresses a simple case of how a patients esthetics have been compromised as a result of erosion as well as parafunctional activity (toothbrush abrasion) and how the patient was eventually restored with an interdisciplinary approach between the restorative dentist and the periodontal surgeon.
